Has Ben Radford left Rockford? (This question was just asked on The Wine Front)
If he has it will be interesting to see (taste) the difference it will make to their wines.
Indeed - Looks like we have a confirmed answer @SteadyI notice from the latest Rag that winemaker Ben Radford is moving on, after 14 years, 'sooner than expected'. Lachlan Duncan moving into that role.
It's also a palate thing.Congrats to all the new(-ish) Stonewallers. When I was at a lunch there last week, some-one from the table asked how many there were and how quick you could become one. Answer from Todd - a) don't know and b) about 5-7 years, with contact and 'engagement' not amount of $$ spent, being important. He also said that there were more SWers than usual being created recently, as some of the 'originals' had slowed down their ordering#. Fixed amount of wine, with less ordered by SWers in total = more room for new SWers!
To get on the mailing list, just call up, or go to their web site: Home Pagewhats the best way to get onto the mailing list (and then become a Stonewaller after 5-7 years)?
Is it a matter of calling up and ordering the less popular wines every couple of months, or visiting a few times is really required?
Some of those are a bit old in the toothLooking for Rockford Basket Press Shiraz 2015 ? Next-Day Delivery Australia-wide, Direct From Perfect Wine Storage to You! Optional 3-Months Free Wine Storage, Then Low Ongoing Rates.www.cellarit.com.au
Hi buzzard. A few friends (8 of us) are organising a trip to the Barossa next May. Obviously with rockford high on the list. Are there any tour providers that you would recommend. It sounds like we will miss the April tour.
If you want to set your own itinerary and hire a van + driver for 8 hours I can PM you a contact that will probably only charge about $500.Hi buzzard.
